On iTunes, which Brooks doesn't allow to sell his music: BROOKS: "Sweet guys. They've allowed me to come into their building several times and pretty much tell them how much I didn't like the system. They listen. But iTunes won't do what (it) needs to until (musicians) find a way to join together, and show them what an iPod sounds like with no music. … They truly think that they're saving music. I looked at them right across the table with all the love in the world and told them they were killing it. Until we get variable pricing, until we get album-only (downloads), then they are not a true retailer for my stuff, and you won't see my stuff on there.” Would he start his own label or circumvent the industry? BROOKS: "No one person is bigger than the system. And my thing is instead of saying, 'Screw the system, I'm doing things this way,' my thing is always, 'Let's (work) together.' I'd love to see us get it together, and that's one of the things for the next five years is to try and figure out how. Athletics has it — anti-trust. That's the only way these guys get the attention of the leagues they work for. Until we can unionize, until we can bond together, we have no power." Does he want the music industry to be exempt from anti-trust laws like professional sports teams? BROOKS: "I want us to be able to come together and represent as a whole to tell the nation. … Our government's not doing anything about piracy. Until we can hear what a day of radio is like with no music, until this place sits silent because the music creators and the artists and copyright (holders) are not happy because they're not being protected like everyone else is, then, yeah, I would like that power myself. It has to be placed in the right hands, so it can't be one person, but a board that represents music, its creators and its content owners. I think that'd be more than fair to stand up and say, 'Look, you've ignored us, because there's 50,000 of us and 300 million voters. You've ignored us, and now to show you, we would like to just simply stop for a day,' and see how dry this world gets.” http://www.usatoday.com/life/music/news/2009-10-15-garth-brooks-quote_N.htm What an idiot. Brooks is what’s wrong with the music industry. By the way, I suggest ‘The Thunder Rolls’ and ‘The Dance’ both available exclusively on Limewire.
